I've always been very interested in natural and herbal things, especially from the time I had my first baby. While I rarely visit a parlour (it's been 2 years I haven't been to one), I do take care of my skin occasionally (read maybe once in 6 months or more!!). I know that is really not done, and the fact that I talk so much about these home-made things should also translate more to my real everyday life..

For now, I will share 10 miracle ingredients that you can find right in your kitchen and that are great for your skin. These barely cost anything, won't take up much time to source and you can use them in the comfort of your, here we go...
